As many healthcare organizations seek to have their billing and coding staffs work remotely, active attempts to compromise their organization’s data, via phishing and malware, are being perpetrated by foreign actors.

Google has announced that in the past month, these malicious attacks have dramatically increased.
Is your organization adequately prepared from a security perspective to have your coders continue working remotely? If you have not validated that your existing security protocols are up to legal and best practices standards, then perhaps now is the time to rethink your current coding setup.
